MANILA - Wearing mini dresses and oversized flower arrangements on their heads, the 40 candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2019 paraded on board sports cars late Saturday, as the country's premiere pageant counted down to the finals night.

The finals, scheduled on June 9, will select the Philippines' representatives to the Miss Universe, Miss International, Miss Supranational, Miss Intercontinental, Miss Grand International and Miss Globe contests.

From last year's crop of winners, the organization led by businesswoman and Colombian beauty queen Stella Marquez-Araneta, produced Miss Universe Catriona Gray, Miss Intercontinental Karen Gallman and Miss International First Runner-up Ahtisa Manalo.

Except for Gray, who is based in New York, all reigning queens were present for the parade at the Araneta Center in Cubao.

Here is a glimpse of the 2019 Binibining Pilipinas 'Parade of Beauties."
